Uganda

This compact East African destination is home to a diverse collection of wildlife and cultural experiences that exemplify the best of the continent.

Vast Horizons Await

Known as the “Pearl of Africa,” Uganda is located in East Africa and offers some of the continent’s most diverse wildlife viewing, dramatic landscapes and immersive cultural experiences. Uganda’s diverse environments range from sweeping savannas to dense forests, crater lakes, the verdant banks of the Nile and the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains.

Uganda is home to more than half the world’s population of endangered mountain gorillas, and trekking to observe these gentle giants in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is one of the world’s top bucket-list travel activities.

Safari opportunities abound in savanna, forest and wetland settings throughout 10 national parks, where visitors can come face to face with “The Big Five”—lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo—as well as giraffes, zebras, chimpanzees, hippos, crocodiles and more than half of all bird species found in Africa. Activities range from safari game drives to primate tracking, bird watching, safari cruises, community immersion, wildlife research activities and more.

Among Uganda’s extraordinary natural attractions are the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains; expansive Lake Victoria, which forms the source of the Nile River; and Murchison Falls National Park.

Your clients will find an experience far beyond the ordinary safari, distinct luxury and a destination like nowhere else on earth. We invite you to dive deeper into Uganda.

WILDLIFE CONSERVATION

Uganda is innately connected to its wildlife, and conservation is essential to the success of the country’s tourism industry, protecting endangered species including the mountain gorilla, chimpanzee, white rhino and Rothschild giraffe, in addition to endangered plants like the cycad. Uganda’s tourism community is dedicated to protecting the country’s invaluable flora and fauna and offers fun and easy ways for people from around the world to help with these endeavors.

INCREDIBLE NATIONAL PARKS

Uganda’s national parks draw visitors from around the world each year. Differing greatly from one another, the parks represent the beauty and diversity of the country’s dynamic array of ecosystems and wildlife. Conservation efforts by the Uganda Wildlife Authority, the government and the tourism community protect these national treasures and help educate and empower local communities to do the same. From big game animals to the highest concentration of birds in all of Africa to captivating flora, the national parks offer dynamic nature experiences on the savanna, in the forest and on the water.
